Yesterday I finished the Black Circular Vest and it came out really cute. I can’t wait to mail it out on Monday and hope the recipient loves it too.
I had a ton of things in my head, I wanted to accomplish today, but even though the list is short, I am still happy with the results. I will just try to accomplish more tomorrow.
Things Accomplished Today:
- Finished the Black Circular Vest. I will take pictures tomorrow. I wanted to mail it tomorrow too but forgot the post office is closed.
- Finished the graph for my daughter’s crochet afghan and plan to finish the block tonight or tomorrow.
- Spent time with my husband, son and father today. Took my husband and my son to dairy queen for lunch followed by a couple of hours at the park. Then went to Whataburger for dinner.
How was your Friday?
Currently Watching: Haven -Season 1-5. I am on Season 3 Episode 2.
Cute Saying of the day:
My son was standing on the bed shaking his butt and saying “Shake your birthday cake”. It made me giggle. I love this kid to death.
My husband went to the store to get us some late night snacks. Got harassed over the drama from yesterday. I am very proud of him for not responding to her and minding his own business. He did respond to the drama on face book though. They are claiming we were getting violent because he called the cops. He called the cops because he wanted to avoid violence. Isn’t that what the cops are here for, to hold the peace?
Circular Vest: I am on row 26 of 32. I should be able to get it in the mail tomorrow!
Graduation Afghan: Blocks needed: Dominique, music notes, student counsel, mascot) Hopefully these will be enough to finish it.
Monkey Blanket: Need 529 blocks, 4 complete. I keep changing how I want to make it. Think I am going to stick to this one.
Adult Braided Pony Tail hat: Need to locate a pattern or create one.
How was your day?
I am on row 17 of 32. The drama of the day kept me from being farther along on it, but hoping I can finish it tomorrow. I really want to get it in the mail this week. I am looking forward to packaging it up and writing the note that goes with it.
Tonight my husband and my dad went to get my daughter’s truck. The guy living on his brother’s property said he would not move his car so they could get to the truck. (Truck was in the pastor across the street, that my husband is supposed to be inheriting.) He threatened to shoot my dad with my son in the truck so they came home and my husband called the cops. So the cop went and told him he could either move them or have them towed his choice. We got the truck back to our house and they had started taking it apart. How are you going to tear someone else’s vehicle up??
We thought it was all said and done, but then the guy called the police and claimed my husband called him threating him and that he wanted to press charges. So the police called my husband and he said nope never called him today, you can come check my phone. How immature can someone be to file a false police report!
Finished Seasons 1-11 of Criminal Minds today. Now onto Haven which has 5 seasons. It wont take long before we finish this one! (Clearly we stay home a lot!)
I have half a block finished and I had to take a break. I was getting way to many projects going and for me that means never ending projects. I need to be able to finish what I have started or most of it before I get going to much on it. My sister also wants a monkey and a pig tails hat.
I was able to get to Row 9 of the Circular Vest last night. For some reason I have to really concentrate on Row 9 so I put it up for the night. I watched the video for it this morning and I am ready to jump into Row 9 again. I am hoping to finish it tonight so I can get it in the mail tomorrow.
I finished another block on the graduation blanket. I will get pictures of it later today. I also connected all the finished blocks except for the latest one. I got to tired to keep working on it last night. It is coming along pretty good and I think I have a good chance of finishing it before May! I just hope I don’t run out of block ideas before it is done.
I spent all weekend on it and I have to say it wasn’t easy. I am not experienced at crocheting so I had lots of (un) crocheting going on! The original showed for different color yarns but I wanted to see it in a solid color and I really like how it looks. If you are needing a pattern I would recommend checking out this one!
Craft: I am on row 30 of 32 of the circular vest I am crocheting. I needed a break but hoping to finish it tomorrow. Once I finish it I will take pictures and post it (along where I got the pattern from.) I have to say I really like it so far!
TV Series: I am on season 6 of 11 of Criminal Minds. Yes I have been binge watching all day long. That is when I can get my son to watch Agent Oso in his room instead!
Special Packages: I got in both my daughters books from college! Thank goodness for Amazon!! I also got in the crochet hooks from WISH. I love getting packages in!
Family Tree: Going to work on Family Tree some more tonight.
I hope everyone is having a great weekend!
Health: I found a similar ankle brace at Walmart for $15 instead of purchasing the one at the doctor for $50. I think I over walked today because my foot was hurting me like crazy!
Crochet: I purchased the yarn to crochet a circular vest. I worked on it for a little bit tonight with the wrong size hook, but I got the hang of the beginning part. Now I can take it out and do it right. I am hoping it comes out great. I have had a few people interested in purchasing some, but want to make sure I could do it before I committed to it.
Yesterday I finished the sugar skulls and sewed the ribbon for the mouth. I just need to finish the ribbon flowers for the eyes. The last step will be crocheting the chain and the garland will be finished.
Weight Loss: I bought a scale today and I will buy the tennis shoes tomorrow. I plan to weigh and measure myself first thing in the morning. Since I have another long day of shopping tomorrow I will wait till Monday to start at the gym. I don’t want to over work my foot.
2017 is starting to look up for me and hoping that it will keep getting better!
